Hi! I have the exact message since today... "Exceptional update in progress..."

Hey @BenNorth, thanks for nudging us here. 

It sounds like the desktop app is just doing a few updates and notifying you about it. 

If you come across any issues, don't hesitate to get back to us and we'd be more than happy to help look into it. 

Cheers! :grin:

They were most likely syncing but it sounds now like everything is running as it should. 

Give us a shout if you have any other questions and, in the meantime, have a lovely week ahead! :grin:
